Nymans herbacious borders in summer are probably the best I have ever seen. Like any garden, visitor numbers are much less in the winter, but 3+ hours can easily be spent strolling around.The woodland areas outside the garden are also worth visiting, but do wear waterproof boots or wellies as it can be wet underfoot in places. The cafe is... More

We visited Nymans on a sunny November day. It was lovely, so I can only imagine how nice it is in the late Spring and summer. The gardens aren't huge, but plenty big enough for a lovely stroll. The house was closed in November, but it was lovely to see from the outside and also the ruined parts. There looked... More

My favourite National trust property. Wonderful gardens, beautiful house, superb views. A lovely place for a picnic and the staff are really friendly. The plant shop is well stocked and has helpful, knowledgeable staff.

We popped in here on the way home from elsewhere, but realised we hadn't allowed enough time. Even in October the grounds were colourful and tempted us to explore, as a good garden should. We had a quick look in the house, but it was closing at 3pm, before the grounds, so we couldn't linger. That does seem very early.... More

Top marks to Nymans for providing a first-rate day out. We loved the gardens and extensive walks (we highly recommend the Millennium Walk). The history of the development of the estate was brought to life by our guide, who had many intriguing stories to tell. Lunch in the cafe was tasty (warming soup on a rather cold day) and the...

There is plenty to see in the gardens and the ruined house gives a romantic look. I loved the fact that you could go on quite a long walk in the adjacent woods so making a really good outing. Parking is free so no worry about rushing. The restaurant has been expanded in size since my last visit but it... More

Friendly and knowledgeable guides variety of vistas and interesting facts about the family. There was a sense of a family home rather than a preserved mansion and blend of family accomodation and runied building skilfully achieved

Everything was enjoyable about our visit last Friday. Weather was fine, parking easy, house and grounds the standard you expect from the NT. However, my wife and I have been members of the NT for some years, and the common thing that detracts from most visits is the price of a snack, and often the quality. My cheese and pickle... More

en route back to London following an overnight stay in Brighton we wanted to see the gardens at Nymans, and we were not disappointed the views and scenery were stunning. Fortunately we were not there for the food as it was to say, at the very least, that it was disappointing, my wife had autumn vegetable soup which tasted as... More
